Breast Reduction Plastic Surgery
Large breasts can cause back pain and unwanted attention. It can also make physical activities such as exercise challenging and uncomfortable. Breast reduction surgery can reduce the volume of a woman’s breasts to deliver desired results with proportion. The surgical procedure can also lift and tighten the breast for a more aesthetic appearance.
How Does Breast Reduction Surgery Work?
Breast reduction is an outpatient surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. During breast reduction surgery, a plastic surgeon removes excess fat and skin to make the breasts smaller. The nipple can also be reduced to a smaller size and lifted for a more aesthetic appearance. The procedure may form visible scarring that can be hidden under a swimsuit or bra. You can resume non-strenuous activities about a week after surgery and strenuous activities after a month.
